condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Walden Kayaks
model name / number: Nigel Foster Silhouette

For Sale: used Nigel Foster Silhouette fiberglass sea kayak. The Silhouette combines a sleek shape with a formidable performance. It was designed by Nigel Foster as a performance sea kayak for the smaller paddler and for those seeking a lightweight, snug-fitting day-boat. While the Silhouette is currently sold by Seaward Kayaks, this boat was made by Walden Kayaks, but the design is the same.

This kayak is the perfect choice for a paddler seeking a high-performance, modern design with crisp Greenland lines and easy edge turning. The cockpit is a snug fit with a low foredeck, good for rolling. The compass is positioned in a protected place where it is visible for easy navigation. There are recessed anchor points for all lines and elastics, three recessed hatches for stowage of equipment - two large oval hatches and an 8-inch “day-hatch” for easy access.

I purchased this boat in new condition in 2002, and it has been stored in a garage when not in use. I am selling because I have stopped paddling due to lower back issues. The overall condition of the boat is very good - there are some scratches and wear consistent with its age, but no structural damage. The skeg mechanism works well. Deck bungees and hatch covers have been recently replaced.

Sale will be cash-only, with pickup by the purchaser.
